Description

The readfile function in PHP 4.4.4, 5.1.6, and 5.2.1 allows context-dependent attackers to bypass safe_mode restrictions and read arbitrary files by referring to local files with a certain URL syntax instead of a pathname syntax, as demonstrated by a filename preceded a "php://../../" sequence.

Solution(s)

  • php-upgrade-4_4_5
  • php-upgrade-5_2_0
  • php-upgrade-5_2_2
